This year I am working on a series of paintings called Tone Poems. I inscribe horizontal lines like musical score lines as an under-painted layer on a canvas. As I develop a composition, I create a visual description of a sensory experience as a mixed media painting. The original score lines appear and disappear as other forms, colors, painterly gestures, and textural elements modulate to suggest an imagined musical "score".
Mixed media installations allow me to share multi-dimensional ensembles of repurposed musical instruments with a broader audience in public display windows.
My dachsund "Oslo" keeps me company in the studio, but is not much help.
